Piece description from the artist

Tree of Life no 5. Acrylic with texture gels (acrylic media) on canvas measuring 18 × 18 inches. The tree motif is used in a variety of contexts to symbolize and represent branched structures, heredity, relatedness and interconnectivity. The tree is a powerful symbol of interdependence and ecological order. Actual trees not only symbolize the ecology, they are also very important actors in preserving balance on earth. Here the state of the tree symbol is used to represent a danger to actual trees. The tree/ tree symbol is damaged, with disappearing small branches. Pumice infused acrylic soft gel medium and other textured acrylic media were used to create an ashy, fragile appearance in the tree form while at the same time rendering it 3-D and substantial. The swirling reds and yellows in the background underscore the feeling of heat and danger.
